Lil Wayne is the latest star to pay big bucks for Los Angeles residential real estate.

The rapper dropped $15.4 million on a 12,000-square-foot home on Lasher Road, according to Dirt.

The mansion was completed in 2019 and sits on 3.3 acres. It’s in the modern farmhouse style, which is becoming the go-to for spec developers around L.A. The home has seven bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, and there is a guest house.

Lil Wayne — whose real name is Dwayne Carter — joins a slew of celebrities in the neighborhood. The Kardashians have long owned homes in the area. Three family members bought new properties there in the last 12 months; all of those homes were formerly owned by the Ponzi schemer Robert Shapiro’s now defunct Woodbridge Group of Companies.

Kylie Jenner paid $15 million for a development site in the neighborhood in May. Meanwhile, her sister Khloe, and mother Kris Jenner bought neighboring spec mansions a few months apart later in October.

Rapper French Montana spent $8 million on NBA star Paul George’s compound in the neighborhood in late December.
